Torbreck 2006 "Woodcutter's Shiraz" wine review by (PB)
(NW) hauled this out for one of our comestible conquests in Boston; This Barossa is heavily pigmented with black cherry and cranberry rim. Bouquet is full of ripe plums with heavy aromas of cream and English pudding.
Palate--Sweet with rich fruit that is "real" being neither jammy nor a fruit bomb. It has some character and even finesse on the finish. At the $20 price point, this wine is a wood cut above the myriad of Aussie Shiraz's in the $15 and under category. Spend the extra few bucks; its worth it! Raise a glass to good Shiraz.
